    question regarding using win 10 on replacement pc


    Hi folk. Its been a while since I was on here. Originally I upgraded my Win 7 to Win 10 when that option was available. The pc it was on has pretty much given up and I am replacing it with a new home build (the last one was also a home build). I remember at the time that we were told that having upgraded from 7 to 10 we could not use that on a different pc if we no longer used the original one. Is that still the case? Or can I use my copy that is not going to be in use?

    Thanks in advance
    Antony
